How To Improve Upon BMW M3 Simulator, Step 1: Put Inside Actual BMW M3...

An M3 simulator put on display during a BMW press event features a computer generated simulation which is projected onto a BMW M3's inner windshield and dash via an on board projector integrated into the back seat of the vehicle.

Includes a video of the simulation in action.

The story is too old to be commented.

turn the car on and just drive it.

@Lord Anubis

No you just feel kind of stupid being in the actual car driving a simulation game. I would rather a professional drive me around a track.

right because all of us gamers can own an M3 and drive at insane speeds on race way against 10 more people, drive back home. grab a gun, boost a car and grab a hooker GTA Style :|

Anibus,

Wait...are you saying we can't? Haha.

I'd rather waste my money on indoor skydiving.

Come on now. BMW should be making the first car that can fly not this crap...:(

Wicked.

towards the end of the clip, if he was driving the M3 in real life either the shifter/stick would have locked or he would have had to buy a new transmission.

I don't know, maybe is just me but the BMWs are gorgeous. I prefer them more than a Lexus or Mercedez. Sadly I don't own any of the cars I mentioned. :(

This is nothing innovative seeing as this has already been done before. The Nissan URGE is pretty much the same thing.

@Nostradavis
The Nissan uses its pedal and steering wheel to play the game.

Nostradavis3783d ago (Edited 3783d ago )

Did you even read the article? A Nissan equipped with a video game console is not even close to what BMW is doing. I simply ask that you read it first.

@FordGTguy,
I understand that but there is a difference between experiencing something hardwired into a screen the size of a rear view mirror and what BMW is doing.

ya my dad has an m3 its pretty sweet and a ton of fun driving but why would anyone spend $100,000 on a simulator when they could go out and buy and even better car than an m3 for that price?

to learn a track race drivers do this alot, they play "games" that are developed by their respective companies that are more realistic then GT4 etc, and they use it to practice on real world tracks while they may be flying there or waiting for the next race. its called preperation.
